    My collection of whips seems to be growing and I would like to buy a case long enough to store them in to keep them straight and protect them but I have no idea where to even look. My longest whip is 25" if that helps.

    That's an interesting idea, thanks Ninja.

    I'm hoping for something more along the lines of this http://www.foryournymphomation.com/cane_case.htm but a 30 inch version.

    I got a cardboard tube from my local carpet shop. Covered the bottom and made a top

    What about a case for a pool cue? Not sure of the dimensions of them but could be worth a little research?

    That's a great suggestion. Does this seem like it would be suitable?

    Here is the same one on a different site. It has a picture of the interior and shows the dimensions too.

    Good idea and it's portable too--no one would suspect a cue case :)

    I think most snooker / pool cues are just under 60 inches in length so a 'two-piece cue' would be oughly half that length so yes, your whip(s) should be fine! Not sure how many you could fit in there though...

    Yeah, the interior seems to have slots for cues too so I imagine I might have to remove them with a seam ripper if possible to make a bit more space. Besides, my floggers, etc. would get stuck in there lol.

    Might sound daft but have you considered an equestrian retailer?

    Hmm I browsed some equestrian stores for crops but didn't come across any storage cases for them?

    What about a fishing rod case or rod tube?

    Are there any large sporting goods stores near you? Seeing different cases first hand might help with estimating how many they'd hold and what sorts of adaptations you'd need to make. Even if you buy online (perhaps with a bigger selection), that info might be helpful.

    A snooker cue case may fit the bill :)

    If you're looking for one that's cheap and cheerful then try a Christmas wrapping paper tube. It's also seasonal and inconspicuous!

    These are both good ideas. Get creative. You can also get cardboard tubes from art shops which are meant for rolling posters/ art work in to in many sizes. eg http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/STRONG-POSTAL-POSTER-TUBES-END-CAPS-ALL-SIZES-/271093974578?pt=UK_Packaging_Materials&var=570123606720&hash=item3f1e75c632

    You can decorate it, wrap it in some nice material or use it inside a bag such as a hockey stick/ didgeridoo bag to provide the added protection.

    Thanks for all the ideas so far! These two cases are definitely the frontrunners at the moment -
